About your host

I left a successful career in television news to become a pastor and now I'm a personal and professional development coach. My deepest desire is to help others reconnect with their true selves through mindfulness, prayer, poetry, and art.

What we’ll do

We’ll begin a tour through the senses with light snacks, music, and art appreciation in the studio of local gem kenT Youngstrom. We’ll move to a time of guided stillness with 20 minutes of mindfulness and prayer. We’ll write and share an original poem. We’ll use our poem to create a piece of original art. We will finish our time of embodied enjoyment with celebratory song and dance.

What else you should know

Please keep in mind that this is a creative process. A little paint might fly. Dress accordingly.

What I’ll provide

Light snacks and dessert from local food artists.
Beer, Soft drinks, Water and Wine
Local beer, NC wine, and tasty surprises.
Creative supplies
We’ll provide paper, paint, canvas, and all the supplies you need.

What to bring

A favorite photo of you in the wild, a picture or drawing of a tree, or something you treasured when you were young.

Where you'll be

Our workshop will take place at kenT Youngstrom’s Matthews, NC studio. It's a look behind the scenes with a creative genius.
